      What gas is liberated from hydrogen peroxide by enzyme action?

      And can H₂O₂be broken down by catalysts other than those found in living tissue?

      H2O2 –> H2O + O2

      Not balanced, of course.

      peroxide is used as a rocket fuel. I don’t think you can use enzymes for that sort of decomposition.

      Catalase breaks down hydrogen peroxide, doesn’t it?

      I was addressing the second part of the question, due to the heat involved

      to give oxygen which appears as bubbles in the catalyst.

      oops i meant -to give oxygen which appears as bubbles in the catalase test.

      dont know about any catalyst other than those found in living organism. but u can use oxidizing agent (KMnO4+sulfuric acid) or chlorine. It’ll produce O2.

      platinum is used in cars, definitely inorganic and not found in organism.
